Social Impact Project for Partnership & Business Development with E-Agro Social Enterprise
Project Description and Impact
We are a social enterprise working with smallholder farmers on multiple levels. Using technology and an innovative logistics, technical assistance and e-commerce platform, we connect smallholder farmers in rural Colombia to a consumer base in urban cities.
At the end of 2018 we ended the construction of the first greenhouse villages of organic production in Medellin. Once we started receiving customers and visitors; we noticed that this space was getting a lot of attention for various uses such as a co-working space, a day off with colleges from work, clandestine dinners venues, and even as a great place to visit for foreign visitors.
We started to see the location's potential as both a new revenue stream and a community connection point for chefs, customers, and farms we with with using an existing asset, without adding any additional cost.
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.In addition, this organization will expose you to new things, like:
